Kop boss Brendan Rodgers will hope to have captain Steven Gerrard available again, after his skipper missed the league match against Aston Villa on Saturday. The midfielder was still recovering from a knock he sustained against Sunderland.
But after just one defeat in 14 games, Rodgers could have a welcome selection headache ahead of the game, as he debates whether or not to change a winning formula. Here’s how we think they’ll line-up:
GK) Simon Mignolet
The Belgian put in arguably his best performance of the season against Aston Villa on Sunday, and finally looks to be showing signs of recapturing some confidence. He will need to be at his best against Chelsea.
RCB) Emre Can
Can continues to impress in his defensive role, and with Kolo Toure away on international duty with the Ivory Coast, his place in the team is unlikely to come under threat. He scored against Chelsea last time out.
